COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed by Ringnes, who took over and closed traditional Oslo rivals Frydenlund many years ago. Frydenlund's yeast was allegedly preserved, and revived in this pilsener with its "characteristic rich and rounded flavour".

Gr0ve (2128) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2006
330 ml bottle. Average white head which subsides quickly leaving the beer transparent. Medium carbonation level. Fruity aroma, which I believe is from their proprietary yeast. Noble hop aroma. Gentle hop bitterness and smooth malt perception. Well balanced.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2006
Coarse lace above somewhat creamy, white, medium-sized head. Clear copper body. Aroma is standard Ringnes caramel malts with some butter. Taste is buttery caramel with skunked hops (from a can!). Some bitterness, but no proper aftertaste. This is very, very poor. Has to be one of the worst pilseners I’ve had. Ringnes must really hate the memory of Frydenlund.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Neatly pilsener golden with a handsome, creamy head. Very light and watery body. Malty with notes of cardboard and nothing much more. Vague underlying sweetness. 271105

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2007 Bottled. Aroma is sweet, malty with notes ofcooked cabbage. Pale golden beer with small white head. Small taste of malt and hop, but well hidden and quickly disappearing. Except for some bitterness that stays a while. Weak, though. (051112)

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2005
From the same brewery as Ringnes, and quite as bland as the other one. Sliughtly more malty than the Ringnes Pils, perhaps, but there is no reason to seek this one out, either!

Kinnaj15 (275) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2005
Coler is pale yellow with small white head. Biter sweet aroma. The taste is thin and watery.

Can. Clere golden colour with a small white head. Malty light hoppy aroma and a sweet malty skunky taste. Light body and a sweet finish.
